It's hard to believe, but Memorial Day weekend is almost here! Take some time this weekend to honor and remember those servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our continued freedoms. They're the real reason that we live in the greatest country in the world!

One way the family and I like to celebrate and observe the day is with a big cookout. For the fair-weather griller, this will be the first big cookout of the season. For the rest of us, it's just another great weekend that we'll be cooking out and a three-day weekend at that! Personally, I don't care what Mother Nature's up to. I'll light the grill in the rain, snow, day, night, good or bad weather. There's never a bad time to grill out!

Watch the video below for some great grilling tips & tricks!

We've been meticulously planning for the past several weeks exactly what we'll be grilling and doing this Memorial Day weekend. It will start with lunch and this year's menu includes hamburgers, hotdogs, brats, and all kinds of fried potatoes. We'll have everything from steaks fries, and crinkle-cut fries to tatter tots.

We'll enjoy our lunch and each other's company. Once it gets close to dinner time we'll hit the grill again for some steaks and chicken. Luckily the entire family are HUGE FANS of the rib-eye and chuck-eye. We'll do those up with some chicken legs and breast, maybe even some Cajun shrimp on the grill to top it all off!

Let's just remember that it wouldn't be possible if it weren't for those who sweat, bled, and died to keep the American dream alive!
